and, remember, egypt is a country of what, 60 million people? it would still seem to be the vast majority of people in these societies are not involved in any of these protests. >> you know, the criticism of the president coming in from romney's supporters, some of his foreign policy advisers, at least in part, the u.s. has itself to blame. the obama administration has shown weakness in that part of the world and the enemies of the united states are jumping. what do you think of that criticism? >> i think it fundamentally misunderstand what is happening. this is not about us, it's about them. what happens in this society, the lid has come up, dictatorships have gone. the real story, not about bad government in libya, it's about no government in libya. the new government, the democratically elected government, barely has control over the country. that's why you are seeing forces come up.
